    I have taken the plunge here. Given up job in legal profession to follow my dream of using photography to bring communities together. It is scary but not as scary as not doing what is in my heart. With salary comes false value of self.

      Karl, that's a really inspiring transition :) And I agree completely about the actual scary part. I see it all the time in friends; they are too afraid to let go of the "comfort" of a job they hate. It's a sad phenomenon.

        Scott Dismore at http://liveyourlegend.net did a U.S study that 80% dont value their work. What kind of world would it be if they did?
        Western culture conditions itself to making money and not a life. Being economically active is not a natural human condition, it is man made by the modern consumer culture we live. EG if you are not happy spend(not matter what the cost). People work for years to pay for children they never see and houses they dont live in, because they are at work. Salaries are away of us relinquishing our responsibility for our time. The question here; What is more important Money or Time?

      I have the same aspirations in a sense. I have never lived in a city for more than a year at a time. My most recent place is in Muscoy, CA. I was amazed at how I managed to help set up a festival at my little sister's school after just starting as a snow cone seller volunteer. My only problem is that I have a problem capturing moments like those.
      I'm less of a photographer and more of director/ writer.
      I'm not sure where I was going with this comment but I guess good luck with your life as a photographer.
      Have a nice evening :)

        You have captured those moments because you lived them. Its all about patience and letting the journey unfold. Easier said than done in a world that demands so much.
